How We Move Party
Friday, June 10, 2016 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm
Free to High School Students
Philadelphia youth between the ages of 13-19 years are invited to explore dance and gesture in a fresh way at the How We Move
Party, organized by The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM). How We Move
is inspired by Ally
, FWM’s current exhibition of art and dance by Janine Antoni, Anna Halprin, and Stephen Petronio.
Hosted in a transformed 7th floor event space, participants can express their creativity, enjoy refreshments, dance to the grooves of DJ Geesissy, and watch a movement performances by Tanaya Thomas of the dance collective mokomotion. Additionally, the How We Move “video quilt”—a collaborative video project made from Instagram-submitted dance videos from throughout the Philadelphia area—will make its debut.
Dress to impress (yourself), grab some friends, and bring your style!
Tanaya Thomas is a multidisciplinary movement artist based in Philadelphia. She has taught youth at Taller Puertorriqueño, the Philadelphia School of Circus, and Spiral Q, and is a member of the dance collective mokomotion. This summer, Thomas is excited to incorporate How We Move into her curriculum at the 954 Dance Movement Collective in Philadelphia.
